Penn State baseball adds 7 signees

The Penn State baseball program announced the addition of seven players to the program as the early signing period began Wednesday.

The Nittany Lions received National Letters of Intent from three Pennsylvania natives, three New Jersey natives and one North Carolina native. Perfect Game, a baseball scouting service, ranks Penn State’s class 50th in the country and fourth in the Big Ten.

The class includes: Conor Larkin (pitcher; Royersford, Pa.), Tyler Dearden (outfielder; Lumberton, N.J.); Bailey Dees (pitcher; Charlotte, N.C.); Ralph Gambino (pitcher; Freehold, N.J.); Tommy Gibson (shortstop; Williamstown, N.J.); Jeff Taylor (pitcher; Pequea, Pa.); and Kyle Virbitsky (pitcher/infielder; Media, Pa.).

“These young men are committed to winning and seeing Penn State baseball succeed at the national level,” Penn State coach Rob Cooper said in a press release. “Coach (Brian) Anderson and Coach (Ross) Oeder have worked extremely hard putting this class together. I appreciate their efforts and we believe the future is very bright.”
